Colorado man facing charges for murder after women found dead

| Nov 12, 2013 | Criminal Defense, Firm News |

A Colorado man has been taken into custody after allegedly fatally shooting two women and wounding one man. He is facing charges for murder as well as attempted murder and assault. It is unclear at this time what legal options he may be exploring, but gathering information on criminal proceedings relating to his situation could provide some assistance as his case moves forward.

The situation reportedly took place near Colorado Springs where two women were found dead in their respective homes, presumably. One of the women was reported as being the suspect’s wife, and it is unclear how the accused knew the other victim, if he did at all. The man who was wounded was reported as being the husband of the second female victim. Both women were declared dead, and at this time the male victim is considered to be in stable condition.

It is unclear how authorities determined that the alleged victims were connected to the suspect. Specific details on the situation were not disclosed, and as the victims were found in different locations, it remains to be seen how authorities determined that all of the victims were connected to the same shooter. Police should continue to investigate the situation and review any evidence found in order to ensure they fully understand the situation.

The accused individual could face serious consequences if he is convicted of the murder charges currently leveled against him. It is important to remember that he is considered innocent until — and only if — he is found guilty after a fair trial. He should be able to present any relating evidence that could benefit his situation, and he may also wish to explore other legal options that could be in his best interests. Information on relevant Colorado laws and criminal proceedings dealing with his circumstances could make a considerable difference in the outcome.
